I have two of these palms that I've been growing for about 5 years. They were given to me as saplings, but I'm not sure what they are. All I remember is being told they were somewhat cold hardy. They've been pretty slow growing, partially I think from being in pots, also because it's been an experiment with trial and error to grow them in a zone 6 area. Any info/help/advice is much appreciated! 20181207_194315.thumb.jpg.5aec9a692bc73520181207_194419.thumb.jpg.1bba19e267311020181207_194439-2241x3984.thumb.jpg.677e

Looks like Trachycarpus fortunei.

Great, thank you. That's what I was thinking, but was hoping for second opinion!

Concur.  Thats exactly what they are.  Id recognize them anywhere.   These ones look very good and healthy.   They can handle sub freezing for sure, and even a little more.  Just don't try that with them in pots unless the pot is protected and even slightly warmed.

Good to know, I'll keep that in mind then. And thanks! I can't believe it's taken me this long to find this forum but I'm excited to be a member, and for all information here!
